  • N_Fiddledog: In fact let's be crystal-clear what this idiot tweeted because BBC bafflegabs it a bit.
  • N_Fiddledog: See because some judge recently decreed this is the law:

    "The First Amendment does not permit a public official who utilises a social media account for all manner of official purposes to exclude persons from an otherwise?open online dialogue because they expressed views with which the official disagrees,"

    Very well, why does disagreeing with the above not apply then? It's not like the guy was just being nasty for nasty's sake. That AOC comment is worthy of some intelligent critique.
  • Tricks: Seems pretty simple. If it's used for some sort of official communication, can't block people. Trump can't and neither can she.
  • N_Fiddledog: Ezra wishes we had a first amendment guaranteeing free speech in Canada.

    What he calls "the censorius thugs of Pakistan" are glad we don't:



    Interesting question though. If Pakistan censors an American in America like they did to Ezra in Canada, who would the American sue? Pakistan or Twitter?

    Iím going to venture a guess that she doesnít get a lot of intellectual critiques via Twitter. Hence the blocks.
